What graphics card do I need to play Path of Exile (1440p) ?

Hi, My PC is i5 3470+rx480. I play mostly Path of Exile (PoE), sometimes CSGO and dota2 and my pc did basically not bad but now I'd like to play my games in 1440p with decent fps so I decided to buy a new PC. 

I currently aim for r5 5600x + b550m motherboard and I need advices about what graphics card I should use. 

My fps drop below 30 when I'm in "heavy" PoE map with rx480 in 1080p, I hope my new PC can do 60+ fps in 1440p.

I can pay  <$750 for graphics card. Should I buy a used rtx 2070 super for $450-$480 (trust me it cost that much in my country) or a new card ? rtx 3060ti ($650)/ rxt 3070 ($740)/ rx 6800 ($700). My plan is to use this pc for as least 4 year without any upgrade.

 

Thanks alot.

I find it hard to believe you can't run it in 1440 with your current set up.  PoE is not a very demanding title. You did not mention how much ram you have currently.  Maybe upgrade the cpu ram first and plug your 480 in it and see how it performs

My card do very well ( 80-100 fps)  in every PoE contents except the "100% delirious delirium map", this content has tons of mobs and item drop. I have 8gb memory as well. People try to low the graphics quality to improve fps but I hate to play that minecraft version of PoE.

Honestly, a Ryzen 3 3100 + 5500XT/1650 Super + 16GB CL16 3200 RAM should easily do 60-144fps in all of those titles, and you can piece that together, today, for $500. That's not bad at all.

I think your plan of upgrading your cpu motherboard and go with 16gb ram first.  Then get the best gpu you can afford.

B550 Mortar Micro ATX:

MSI MAG B550M MORTAR WIFI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

 

G Skill 16GB CL16 3200MHz:

G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB DDR4 3600 Desktop Memory - Newegg.com

 

Ryzen 3 3100:

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 3.6 GHz Socket AM4 100-100000284BOX Desktop Processor - Newegg.com

 

$403 in total with free shipping, and in stock. Not sure if these are best prices though. Might be a bit cheaper on Amazon, I thought the R3 3100 was $100.

 

Either way, that motherboard is solid. If you decide to drop in a used Ryzen 9 5950X, a few years from now, all you need to do is a quick and easy BIOS update, and just drop it in and it would work.

World is your Oyster, up to an RTX 3090. See how big your power supply is, but if you're looking at 3300's, you'd be into likely a 5500XT or a 1650 Super.
